|Rams Rookie Impresses at Cornerback
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Rookie Janoris Jenkins draws a vivid description of how he wants to play cornerback for the St. Louis Rams: "like a ninja, an assassin."
The 5-foot-10, 193-pound Jenkins has been impressive in camp since he signed a four-year contract just before reporting for practice. Frequently working with the first-string unit, Jenkins has been able to open eyes to his considerable talents.
Certainly, his play in training camp has made his past issues seem minor. The influences that helped him get kicked off the Florida team following two arrests for possession of marijuana and another charge of resisting arrest are in the past, Jenkins says.
